As a young astronomy student, I became disenchanted with applied physics and mathematics and exchanged my view through a telescope for a view through a camera lens. Through this filter I explore issues of memory, technology, science, and photographic archives in my work. I received my BFA with an emphasis in Photography from the University of Arizona in 2011, and received my MFA in Photography + Integrated Media from Ohio University in 2014. I served as an Assistant Professor of Art in the School of Art at Minnesota State University Moorhead in Moorhead, Minnesota from 2015 to 2023. In addition to teaching, I continue to exhibit my work nationally and internationally in galleries and museums and have been featured on PetaPixel and HuffPost.
